Community Love

Giving our filmmakers some love!

Here at 48Hours HQ, we want to acknowledge the work of some of the charitable and community organisations that give their time, passion and expertise to our country's filmmakers. We see this as a positive step towards nurturing a healthy and diverse future film industry in Aotearoa.

To help these organisations help filmmakers, we have 7 free entries available for the 2019 competition.

To apply you simply need to email us and let us know:

  • Who you are
  • How free entry will benefit you
  • If you’ve entered before

Please send emails to and with the email subject line 48HOURS COMMUNITY ENTRY.

Emails must be received by May 20th and will be announced May 22nd (before the early-bird period ends).

The final decision will be made by 48hours and no correspondence will be entered into.
